Attics, Basements & Secret Places: Baker Tilly

Take a trip down into the depths of an old local post office

by Lauren Gooch – January 10, 2018

In 1931, the U.S. post office was constructed on Waln Street in Wellsboro, PA. This building, which was built during The Great Depression, is also a severe weather location. The structure is now home to BakerTilly, a full-service accounting firm in Wellsboro.

Specific locations around the post office were used by postal inspectors to oversee the mail sorters to ensure their jobs were done correctly. Other historic features include a walk-in safe and framed Fortune magazines from the 40s, 50s, and 60s, which adorn the walls as business d├ęcor.

Although the upstairs lobby was remodeled, much of the existing features were maintained or replicated, such as the lights and molding. Owners Dave and Sharon Pennypacker came across another building in Edenton, NC, which ironically had identical flooring and marble features as the Wellsboro building. Oddly enough, this building was also constructed in 1931!
